|Many thanks to
Calyn for sharing these AWESOME pictures of the Leopolis area
with us! If you know of any information that would help
identify the unknown photos listed, Calyn would love to hear
Up until five years ago, I lived outside of Leopolis on the
North Branch of the Embarrass River. After finding myself at a
place in life where I could choose where I wanted to live, I
moved back to Albany, GA. I love it very much but, itís been
challenging to continue working on my family tree. My family
was from Shawano, Oconto and Winnebago Counties. I would like to
share some photos of Leopolis from the early 1900s. The pictures
were given to my grandparents, Louise and Fred Krenger, by
relatives after a home fire in 1973 destroyed all their
pictures. Sincerely, Calyn Akstulewicz
These vintage photos of
early Leopolis are such a great addition to the site -- I'm sure
you will enjoy them as much as I have in creating this page.
The photos on this first page have been enhanced or altered from
their original size to fit the page. If you click on the
photos, you will be taken to the original LARGER photo that Calyn scanned in and emailed to me.
And, if you have pictures
you'd like to share with the Shawano site, just email me and
we'll make a page just like this to display your treasured
